Stranger Things star Matthew Modine teases his return for season 2

21 February 2017 2:19 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Full Metal Jacket actor Matthew Modine has taken to social media to tease his character’s return for the much anticipated season two of Netflix’s Stranger Things.

We have been unsure if the actor who portrayed character Dr. Brenner, the season’s creepy antagonist, would be returning for the second season, adding to the deep layer of mystery that already surrounds the nostalgic sci-fi adventure.

At the end of season one it looked like Dr. Brenner had seen his last days but a recent post on instagram by Modine perhaps says otherwise.

Now this isn’t concrete proof that Brenner is returning but this certainly seems to suggest that the good doctor might rear his conniving head once more. We will have to wait until the new season drops however to see how the whole thing plays out. »

Sundance: The 10 Very Best Films from the 2017 Film Festival

30 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Sundance Film Festival is officially over and the awards have already been handed out, both the official ones and our own Unconventional Awards, and out of the roughly thirty films I saw during my time in Park City, Utah, I’ve put together a list of the ten very best movies I had a chance to see. Many of them will be coming to theaters across the country later in the year, and a few of them may even be in the Oscar conversation a year from now.

10. The Big Sick

Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani made his triumphant debut as a leading man with this movie produced by Judd Apatow, directed by Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name is Doris) and co-written with wife Emily V. Gordon. Based on their own experiences in courting and how Emily (played by Zoe Kazan) being put into a medically-induced coma affected it, »

The Most Dangerous Jobs on Film

26 January 2017 10:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite what everyone says, being an actor is hard work. You have to be on set for hours on end, day and night, constantly in the media spotlight, and often do crazy stunts for the purpose of authenticity. But no matter how hard that is, it doesn’t compare to some of the jobs that they must re-create on the big screen.

Deepwater Horizon, for example, is a true life story that records the oil-rig disaster off the Gulf of Mexico, in which Mark Wahlberg plays the extremely brave and courageous Mike Williams, who must save as many workers on board as possible amongst the fire. And although this is a very rare occurrence onboard a rig, it does demonstrate the worst case scenario for a job such as that, as the below films do also.

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Review

25 January 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughan, Hugo Weaving, Sam Worthington | Written by Andrew Knight, Robert Schenkkan | Directed by Mel Gibson

Andrew Garfield goes to Japan to face a powerful enemy, and finds his Christian faith and pacifist opposition tested to the limit in a realm of violent conflict. But enough about Martin Scorsese’s Silence. This is Hacksaw Ridge, the directorial resurrection of the notorious Mel Gibson. It’s a safe and solid return, one which hits the standard war movie beats and only really distinguishes itself as a result of the incredible true story at its core.

Garfield is Desmond Doss, a Virginia boy whose father Tom (Hugo Weaving) is an alcoholic brute, lost in the mire of Ptsd following his service in the Great War. Tom doesn’t want his sons to go to war. Especially not the smart, gentle one. But Des is drawn by duty, so he ships off to Fort Jackson, »

Hacksaw Ridge review: “Heart-poundingly intense, but altogether outstanding”

24 January 2017 8:28 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hacksaw Ridge review: Andrew Garfield plays WWII hero Desmond Doss in this thrilling, impactful effort from director Mel Gibson.

Read our Hacksaw Ridge review below. The film opens across the UK on January 26th, 2017.

Mel Gibson hasn’t directed a film since 2006. That movie was the impressive Apocalypto, a film not in the English language that secured a tad over $120 million at the worldwide box-office, from a reported $40 million budget. The years that followed were not particularly kind to Gibson, both personally and, as as result, professionally. Now clear of his demons with Hollywood starting to welcome him in again – plus an acting career that is also looking on the up following last year’s impressive Blood Father, Gibson has delivered possibly his best directorial effort yet, the World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge.

‘Ridge’ revolves around the real-life character Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), a young twenty-something intent on helping his country during WWII. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Yellow Birds’

21 January 2017 6:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s unusual, at the Sundance Film Festival, to see a drama about a subject like the Iraq War. The economics of scale required to stage an authentic combat scene don’t tend to mesh with indie-film budgets — and besides, there are enough towering war films in our time that the bar for them has been set extraordinarily high. So say this much for “The Yellow Birds”: When it plunks the audience down into a crumbling urban war zone, where every dirt road and alleyway could be a path to oblivion, the movie, if nothing else, creates a physically convincing atmosphere of instability and fearful tension. The movie opens with U.S. soldiers walking across a dark field, past palm trees (one of which is on fire), in a grimly patterned death march that evokes — ironically — the final moments of “Full Metal Jacket.” And, indeed, Stanley Kubrick’s great »

Kingpin is unlikely to appear in future Marvel movies, says Vincent D’Onofrio

17 January 2017 12:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin has become a fan favourite after appearing in Netflix’s Daredevil. But it seems the crime lord is unlikely to make an appearance in any future Marvel movies.

Speaking to Digital Spy while promoting his latest project Emerald City, the actor was asked about Kingpin’s future as it pertained to the McU. The Full Metal Jacket actor had the following to say.

“I would love to switch over to the movies, but I think it’s pretty much been said it’s not going to happen. Or at least not for a very, very long time. I think Kevin Feige explained that, and that’s what makes the most sense, he said the film universe is too jam-packed. It’s hard enough already, and if they keep bringing big characters in that they have to service in the writing, it’s not gonna work. »

Best Editing Oscar: How Do Voters Separate Great Editing and Directing? (Hint: It’s Not Easy.)

11 January 2017 4:40 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Thelma Schoonmaker won the first of her three Academy Awards for “Raging Bull,” she humbly told journalists that she believed she was being honored for work done by the director, Martin Scorsese.

“I won the Oscar for ‘Raging Bull’ for those fight sequences,” said Schoonmaker in a 1991 interview with Wide Angle/Closeup. “If you look at those fight sequences, those were so incredibly storyboarded and shot in an incredible way – that is the conception a good director has to bring.”

All below-the-line talent interprets a director’s vision through their crafts, but the editor’s work is most closely associated with the director’s. From 1981 to 2016, every Best Picture winner, except “Birdman,” was nominated for Editing. “Birdman” features long, unedited takes and elaborate camera movements; that might be the only way »

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”

Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:

Jan. 25, 2002: A Walk to Remember (15 Years)

While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.

Let’s not also forget that 2002 gave us Naomie Harris in 28 Days Later, Barbershop, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, [link »
